. president obama says he hasn't made a decision yet, but that he is considering limited, narrow action in response to the chemical weapons attack. ed henry is at the white house monitoring the situation. ed joins us now. ed? >> reporter: andrea, good to see you. after days of laying low on syria, the president let his secretary of state, john kerry, take the lead on this issue twice this week. he came out a short time ago and spoke out, went after president assad in syria by basically saying this is a challenge to the world right now to step up and lead in the wake of this gas attack that killed, according to the administration, over 1400 people, mostly women and children inside syria. but the president now finds himself in a very difficult position. this is a nobel peace prize winner, someone that ran for president in 2008 saying you have to go to the u.n., you have to get congressional authorization before you act militarily. now standing alone on the world stage, pushing basically for unilateral u.s. military action, the president seeing his reset with russia, now in tatters at the
-american president standing on those same steps he did in 1963. here is president obama commemorating dr. king's dream and his lasting legacy this afternoon. >> on a hot summer day they assembled here in our nation's capital under the shadow of the great emancipator. everyone that realizes what those glorious patriots knew on that day that change does not come from washington but to washington. that change has always been built on our willingness, we, the people, to take on the mantle of citizenship, you are marching. that's the lesson of our past. that's the promise of tomorrow. >> okay, bob, you were particularly moved by this speech as you were by dr. king's speech so many years, 50 years ago. >> yeah. i think if dr. king had been alive today, listened to these tributes, i think he would have been -- first of all, he would have been amazed there was a black president, but i think obama did exactly the right thing. i think he talked about change coming from the grass roots into washington, not the other way around. i know there's been a lot of controversy about washington dictating from here
, despite the tough rhetoric from the whourks president obama has still not announced a decision about what, if any, military action he's going to take against the syrian regime. i'm tucker in for sean. earlier today, the administration released part of an intelligence report and moments later, the president had this to say. >> as you've seen, today, we've released our unclassified assessment detailing with high confidence that the syrian regime carried out a chemical weapon that killed well over 1,000 people, including hundreds of children. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international laws against the use of chemical weapons by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan. and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. so, i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. now, i have
as we are a day closer to a potential show down with syria. a few hours ago, president obama sat down for an interview with pbs news hour and said he has not made a decision on syria. let's watch. >> again, i have not made a decision. i think it is important that if, in fact, we make a choice to have repercussions for the use of chemical weapons then the assad regime which is involved in a civil uh war, trying to protect itself, will have received a pretty strong signal that, in fact, it better not do it again. and that doesn't solve all the problems inside of syria. you know, it obviously doesn't end the death of innocent sieve yan -- civilians inside syria. we hope political transition can take place. we are prepared to work with anybody -- the russians and others -- to try to bring the parties together to resolve the conflict. but we want the assad regime to understand that by using chemical weapons on a large scale against their own people, against women, against infants, against children, that you are not only breaking international norms and standards of decency, but you are cre
. then senator obama answered that question by saying, the president does not have power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. i pressed jay carney on that point today in the daily briefing and also, meanwhile, republicans like john mccain tonight are saying, if there is going to be military action, it cannot be a symbolic action, backing up the president's rhetoric about a red line, it's got to be serious action that decimates assad's military. take a listen. >> do you believe that exists right now? >> i believe it is a threat to the united states. i believe that absolutely allowing the use of chemical weapons on a significant scale to take place, without a response would present a significant challenge to -- a threat to the united states national security interests. >> if it's simply that we launch some cruise missiles and do that for three gayes and not have a significant effect on the momentum on the battlefield. it will have a -- an unhelpful effect. if we do it right, and
an obama phone if you ask, whether you need it or not. >> you got no, everybody in cleveland is a minority got an obama phone. >> eric: arizona busted up the largest food stamp prad in the state's history. there must be more of that. what do you think of all the stuff going on? >> this was founded on the principle of the individual rights. your life belongs to you. that's why none of the social progressive programs are in the competition. the pros peerous time came before any of the programs were enacted. the social ills have risen along with all the entitlements. and welfare programs whether it's not verity, food stamp or college cost. i hurts the recipients more than anyone. it retards and that skill. >> eric: this is a maker versus takers. people are making and put in system but a lot of people take out of the system. your thoughts? >> these are supposed to be short-term fixes but this has become a way of life. it's leading to a up the of abuse. 46 million people on food stamps in america. the fraud cases increase by 30%. that is $800 million. that is a up the of money. our focus is no
know what we know, the question is what will we do let me empsoys. president obama and we in the united states we believe in the united nations and great respect for the brave inspector who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation. and as the security general moon said again and again, the un investigation will not affirm who used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the un investigation. they will only a whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the un can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon and we don't already know and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action of the un security council, the un cannot dwaflinnize the world to act the way it should. let me be clear, we'll talk to the congress and talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people and president obama will insure that the united states of america makes our decisions on our own time lines and based on our value asks in our interest. now we know that after a decade of conflict, the am

>> this is "studio b." president obama saying moments ago that he has not made a decision on taking action against the syrian regime for using chemical weapons, but the president says, quote, this kind of offense is a challenge to the world. that minutes are the secretary of state john kerry addressed reporters and the public, laying out some of the evidence against syria, and while the u.s. intelligence officials are highly confident that assad's regime used chemical weapons to target innocent civilians. >>> inside syria. word the military forces there have made move to prepare for any possible strike. we'll tell you what we're hearing from our sources. that's all ahead unless breaking news changes everything on "studio b." >>> but first from fox at 3:00, president obama speaking just minutes ago, calling syria's use of chemical weapons a threat to america's national security. one, that affects nations all around the world. >> this kind of attack is a challenge to the world. we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. thi
. >> secretary k least made plain i thought today that he and president obama believed, they are certainly highly competent that chemical weapons were used by the assad are a jeevment the only question is can they persuade capitol hill and whether or not it's wise to do anything. >> or will they wait for a chance even to persuade capitol hill? capitol hill doesn't come back here until monday. >> indeed, it doesn't. of course we know what the brits think and that the toy has said no and the brits say. no the u.n. says they are going to wait. it's interesting because secretary kerry said today that the u.n. isn't even -- they are just determining whether there were chemical weapons used not who used them which is, of course, a significant issue. anyway, james, thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: today's senator mike lee tweeting if the president cannot convince congress that the syrian crisis threatens our national security military intervention should be off the table. senator lee joins us. nice to see you, sir. >> thank you very much, greta. >> what does the president have to do to convince you, s
>>> just over an hour ago, president obama saying there should be military action in syria. take a listen. >> this attack is it an assault on human dignity. it also presents a serious danger to our national security. it risks making a mochrie of the global prohibition of the use of chemical weapons. it endangers our friends and partners along syria's borders, including israel, jordan, turkey, lebanon and iraq. it could lead to escalating use of chemical weapons. or their proliferation to terrorist groups who would do our people harm. in a world with many dangers, this menace must be confronted. after careful deliberation, i have decided that the united states should take military action against syrian regime targets. this will not be an open ended intervention. we would not put boots on the ground. instead, our action would be designed to be limited in duration and scope. but i'm confident we can hold the assad regime accountable for their use of chemical weapons. deter this kind of behavior, and degrade their capacity to carry it out. >> the president saying he will seek a congr

ten years ago without great britain, without a resolution. obama is doing exactly what he ran for president against when he pledge never to do. it is like animal farm, repainting slogans on the farm and pretending they were always that way. >>anna: we're starting to see arguments on both side. charles krauthammer saying is it something to do with the president's ego saying don't cross the red line and once crossed not doing anything about it. and jack keane saying something should have been done earlier. >> no purpose whatsoever unless it is to assuage the guilty conscience of a president or vindicate the vanity of a president who has become the laughingstock around the world and whose word means nothing because last year he spoke about a red line and allowed all the red lines to be crossed without lifting a finger. maybe he feels compelled as a way to vindicate himself. you don't take a country into war as a way to vindicate your own standing. you do it to achieve strategic objectives on behalf of your country. if they're going to do a three-day strike with no intention of al
obama says he's not going to negotiate on this. he wants a clean bill, raise the debt ceiling, no other issues on the table, no strings attached. just let me borrow more by october so i can pay the bills. that's the statement from president obama no negotiations. that's not going down very well on wall street. they look at this and say here we go again and the dow jones average will open about 120 points down in part because of that no negotiation position from the president. martha: we know from history republicans will come back and say they want to see spending cuts to pass this through. why do you think the president is so intractable on this issue? >> it's possible he thinks if there is a government shutdown over the debt ceiling issue then the president wins politically and the republicans as they have in the past lose politically so he's saying go ahead, shut it down. the market is concerned about the syrian situation and again about another debt crisis 50 days away. martha: there are oil concerns percolating in the market and we'll talk about those a couple minutes away. and a v

kelliy. the obama administration is weighing the options on the possibility of a military strike to punish syria's reportedous of chemical weapons. congressional leaders are expected to be briefed on the situation later today. recently as two daysing on, it appeared that the u.s. and allies were ready to act at and moment. but today world powers are walking back suggesting that a military strike is imminent. british prime minister cameron said it is unthinkable to support a strike if there is strong opposition in the un. they argue that the political solution can only happen if there is a stop in the escalation of violence. israel is bracing for a worst- case scenario. they are deployed to maintain order as this happeneds of people get gas masks and protective kits. israel called up reservist and deployed missile defense bat row with syria and iran striking for any western military action. reporting live from the mideast bureau. hello, leland. >> there is growing fores that the longer the war of words goes on the worse the war will be. especially as iran and syria are making thre
